This isnt scientific, but this is what Ive found. Every carrera tensioner that I have seen that had failed, always had the small stamped steel cage on the top of the pressure relief that holds the ball in- loose. the cage woudl still be in place, but you coudl wiggle it with your finger. Maybe coincidence, but that is what I always found. And you know the tensioner is bad when you hear the car running and it sounds like someone is running a chain hoist inside the engine, since the cahin is slappin around and rubbing the case.
